A "souper" easy dinner.

This is one of the many Instant Pot recipes that is super fast, easy, and delicious. This is vegetarian-friendly but is not vegan (due to dairy).

Everyone should own a pressure cooker. They make food really fast, retain flavor, and are great for busy households, students, single parents, those going camping, and anyone who does not eat meat. Why slave over a stove when you don't have to?

If you're being really frugal and getting ingredients from a discount grocer, you can make a ton of this soup for just a few bucks. Serve it with bread and salad, and it's an entire meal. If you want to be fancy, serve it in bread bowls. Fresh ingredients are better, but not necessary.

It's a great soup and can be frozen for up to three months.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 4 min
Ready in: 14 min
Yields: 8+ depending on serving size

Frozen vegetables

  • about 4 cups 1-2 bags frozen veggie medley, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower
  • 4-6 cups chicken broth/or veggie broth, use 4 cups if you want thicker soup
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Empty frozen veggies into the pot.
  2. Add 4-6 cups of water, or chicken broth, or water and bouillon cubes, or even vegetable broth (this recipe is so forgiving).
  3. Set the instant pot to high pressure, for 4 minutes.
  4. When the pot beeps, quick-release the steam.
  5. Add the pint of heavy cream, stir.
  6. Add your cheese, and stir again until melted.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy!

If you want a creamier soup, stick blend it in the Instant Pot after step 6. Top with more cheese, more veggies, or anything else you like.

Into the pot it goes

      A pressure cooker sounds very useful. I love the short time needed to cook a meal! Your recipe looks delicious.

      Okay. But I have no more counter space in my kitchen-- I use my crockpot 2x a week.

      You can, but I'm not sure how long that would take. Ditch the crockpot and get an instant pot, you'll use it 100x more often and it can be a crockpot too. :)

      This soup looks delicious. But I don't have an instant pot, just a crockpot, and no more counter space for it. Can I use my crockpot for this recipe?

      Is an instant pot a pressure cooker? This looks good. Evan vegans can do some substitutions with this.
